For college and high school mental health and suicide prevention presentations, I start by telling the story of my youngest son, Charles, who suffered from depression, then addiction and died by suicide.

High School and College Coping Strategies Program (pdf)– This can be virtual, or delivered in person over the course of several days. Typically, if in person, I do an evening before for parents and the next day presentations are to students. Some schools then request safeTALK training for teachers and student leaders (maximum for one 3.5 hour class is 30.)
